I loved my Rytm in many ways, but not the workflow. I make all decisions nowadays on workflow. If something is fast and fun to get a groove going, then it stays. For me, the Digitakt is the only piece of Elektron gear that succeeds in workflow. You can get used to the workflow on the Rytm, but it’s not fast and fun imo, just acceptable.
I sold my Rytm despite loving the sound of it. Now what I’ve discovered is that you can get the same sound from Analog Heat + Digitakt, but with way better workflow. Plus 8-note polyphony on the Digitakt via the RK002 cable and P-locks for external synths= big win. So to me the choice is now clear: Digitakt + Heat.
I understand why people love the Rytm, but for me the negatives outweighed the positives.
